    Sort of reminds me of the outbound Seattle relays. No weights, and usually over on the drives. Let's see you almost have to drive across the terminal scale on your way out of the yard. Doesn't happen anymore. The hammer got dropped.

    Won't ever hear me saying our line drivers are great. The top ones from Priority would probably have a heart attack if you ask those gods to scale their own load.

    The no raise in insurance is a miracle in and of itself with the uncertainty in the insurance market...

    True, managers and sales get up to 70% of their salary in additional bonus every quarter. The more they can squeeze from a driver the bigger the bonus. Would be nice to get the occasional $15,000 bonus check every 3 months!

    Word was given to us, that it don't matter who or what position you have. No tobacco. A lot of us driver's and office (male), use smokeless. I guess gum sales are going to be going through the roof.

    No. I finished my last PDX-MEO turn this evening. Came home drank a few Corona's, and relaxing. I did it last Sunday. I had to call off Saturday, to straighten out things with Washington DMV.

    Saw a driver I didn't recognize maybe next time. Have fun at the DMV. Those WA ppl make line drivers look active. I hate the Wa DMV.

    What I hate worse is you give your paperwork to a person to fax to Olympia. Two weeks later you get a letter in the mail. Yep, they're closed Monday, so I gotta burn a day to wait in line at their circus.

    I guess we shall see... I'm still of the opinion that there's enough old boys club around here that it will get overlooked in some locations...

    If you can stand the 15% pay cut, Hat Dispatch LLC is looking for drivers.
    Gold Hotel is equipped with spit cups along with pee bags.

    Or just join YRC - you'll be able to donate that percentage in your paycheck and smoke all you want.
